My wife and I had an excellent time at the restaurant. We chose it as a special venue for our 30th Anniversary and we were not disappointed. Our server, Mary K acknowledged our special occasion was very pleasant and gave superb service. The Manager, Cedric also took the time to speak with us and give his congratulations to us as well.

The food was excellent and there was plenty to take home in a "to go box" to continue savoring later. Everyone was just so personable even when boxing up the leftovers that it left my wife and I very pleased and made our experience there memorable. Mary K gave us an anniversary treat for dessert, which I have posted below.

Thank you Mary K and Cedric for making our special occasion even more special.

I have been traveling for 25 years. This was my first dining experience at Ruth Chris. Always thought it was just an over priced chain. I was wrong, the entire dinner from start to finish was outstanding.

Anniversary dinner here was excellent, as always. Always our special occasion venue. Full filet dinners with salads and sides, 1 wine, deserts (special for occasion), $110 + Tax + tip. Can't beat that. Excellent service (by Casey and others). Glad we got a reservation via Open Tables because the place was packed st 6:30.

I was quiet put off by the trash at the entrance to The Embassy Suites...it was overflowing to include beer cans and water bottles. Then we went to use the revolving door, it was so smeared with handprints we hated to enter. Once we did enter, we noticed a break in the glass that appears to be a gun shot. Then we saw an employee from the hotel asleep on the couch!
However, once inside Ruth’s Chris, we had an exceptional steak and our server was excellent! We were celebrating our anniversary and he brought out a special dessert that was very impressive.
We think the best steak in Birmingham is at Ruth’s Chris but would like to see you relocate your restaurant.

Made reservation especially for our anniversary. The food was outstanding! The biggest problem was the table - instead of being seated in a more secluded area we were seated in the middle of the restaurant in a prime walkway area of the main dining room - not what you would want for a special anniversary dinner. Again, food was fantastic but ambiance left a lot to be desired.

Ruth's Chris has been our place for special occasions in the past. This time, we were disappointed. The menu had changed since the last time we were there. We didn't like the stuffed mushrooms that had always been a favorite. The steak was good but not excellent, as we had before. Overall, the evening did not meet our expectations

Our reservation was at 9:15 and although late evening we would expect the same quality and service as any other time slot. The server, Staley and William were excellent. The bus person sat nearby and glared at us after closing time clearly annoyed we were keeping him late. For a $200 tab I would expect better treatment. The food was mediocre at best, we both ordered medium rare and they were definitely closer to medium and on the larger ribeye cut it was closer to medium well. Our server did mention she saw it was overcooked but never mentioned it...at this point we ate and just let it be. We won't be returning to this location

We sat in the sun the entire time. Was too hot, glare was awful and had to wear sunglasses the whole meal. We were so ready to go we did not even consider dessert. If I come again I will ask for a table inside where it was cool. Because of this I did not enjoy the meal as much as I should have on Mother's day. We asked to be moved to another table as we were being seated but were told it would take much longer and we had already waited with our reservations. Some sort of screen/netting needs to be put up in the outside area if people are to enjoy their meal, especially as much as the meal cost.

We enjoyed the lunch but it took an extremely long time to get our main course. It was about 40 minutes from the time we ordered until it was served. That was after I had to flag the waiter to ask about it. We ordered coffee and dessert. The dessert cake rather quickly but the coffee didn’t arrive until after we’d finished the dessert. It was a bit busy with it being Mother’s Day but it was not fully packed.

Juan, Jaime and the other person that were serving our table (sorry don’t remember his name) were excellent.
I highly recommend it and, for sure we will be bsck.

Ruth's Chris is one of our favorite restaurants. We are from Northwest Arkansas and eat at the Rogers location. It is always a fabulous experience. We chose Ruth's Chris in Birmingham to celebrate our sons graduation from the University of Alabama but were sorely disappointed. The bright spot was the food, which was excellent as always. However, the service was lacking. It took a very long time for our order to be taken after we didn't order alcohol or an appetizer. They did not offer the appetizer we usually order in our local Ruth's Chris. Finally, we waited a very long time in a very loud atmosphere to order dessert. When our waiter finally came over it was to bring our check. We had to ask for a dessert menu which seemed to annoy the waiter. After another long wait the dessert menu was finally brought to us and once again the dessert we usually order wasn't on this menu. That was okay because we realize each restaurant might offer different items. It was the wait that was the problem Once again we were left waiting to order the dessert. I am not sure how long we waited but we finally decided to pass on the dessert and just asked for the check when the waiter finally came back. Getting the check and paying took a very long time as well. While, as I mentioned before, the food was excellent the overall experience was a huge let down on this special occasion.

There were no hiccups except for steak cooking. I ordered the filet medium well, she ordered the petite filet medium. We got a petite filet cooked medium well and a filet cooked medium. We made it work without sending it back, but still, I would consider that a hiccup. Easy mistake to make though, still a great experience overall. I have never been disappointed

The Birmingham Ruth Chris is my least favorite which is sad since I live in BHM however this visit was better than my last two- service great and side dishes great but cuts of meat always lacking ! Better at the butcher shop but my small filet was 47.00 so it should be perfection - Destin Ruth Chris always delivers great cuts of meat not sure why BHM struggles
